John McCain never lied to us or led us on, with regard to his feelings about the Iraq war. The same can't be said about Barack Obama, and something is going to be said about the thousands of troops who will died while Obama was riding out the equivalent of one whole presidential term, promoting himself as an able Commander in Chief of those same soldiers.
The Democratic process, like any of the smaller and individual campaigns that are part of it, assumes that citizens can and do change their minds.
We Dems can never bring back those soldiers. But there ever be a better time for us to give to all of our own party's war enablers their walking papers, and starting with Barack Obama.
